Any thoughts on pairing the 127s with a Berlebach 19C? The geared column on the TR3s apparently can’t handle it. Would the 19C be able to handle 25+ pounds of optics on the geared center column?

I dont believe the TR3 has the option of a geared column. It’s a push/pull carbon fiber tube with a compression ring. 
 

You loosen the compression ring and adjust the tube (up or down) and then tighten the ring.

My two cents.
